You shouldn't have to retire from life when you retire  

The Civil Service Retirement Fellowship is a national charity dedicated to helping former civil servants and their dependents make the most of their retirement. Why not join our community?


Our befriending services provide companionship to any beneficiary experiencing loneliness or social isolation.

Community groups

Volunteering is a highly rewarding way to make new friends, explore new avenues and make the most of the skills and experience you have.
